This week continues the theme of birds that rely on damp grasslands for breeding. As a kid I would have called these birds Peewits and they were a (reasonably) common sight on ploughed fields and on the permanent grasslands on the Mendips. Today, they are not so abundant.
Technically I think these birds are now called Northern Lapwings, and enjoy a double barrelled scientific name - Vanellus vanellus.
You may not be surprised to find out that these pictures were taken on Orkney in Scotland.
